Guiyang is a youthful provincial capital in China. Its location makes it a perfect base for exploring the surrounding areas, especially Huangguoshu Falls, the ethnic villages around Kaili, and historic Zhenyuan. In 2017, Guiyang cooperated with American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) to hold ASTA China Summit (ACS). North American travel agents and tour operators were invited to Guiyang, which greatly promoted Guiyang's tourism image and caused a big stir in tourism industry worldwide. The WTE 2019 advanced further compared with the ACS 2017. European and Asian buyers were also invited along with North American buyers, making the event more "international". Guiyang again attended WTE 2019 to promote its amazing tourism resources to guests from all around the world. Guiyang's continuous efforts to develop its inbound tourism will surely boost the reputation and influence of Guiyang tourism in international markets and build itself into a new hot international tourist destination in China.
